  1. Thread all 22 rice pearls onto the artistic wire before beginning.
  2. Carefully make a slipknot with the wire, leaving a 3-inch tail.  Tighten the slipknot onto your crochet hook.
  3. Slide 1 rice pearl up to the crochet hook and ch over it.  The pearl should now be “caught” in the ch stitch.
  4. Repeat Step 3 until all pearls are chained over.  Finish off, leaving a 3-inch tail.
  5. Grasp the pearl ch at either end and pull firmly in opposite directions to flatten the wire stitches.  This will give the bracelet a neater appearance.
  6. Using the needle nose pliers, thread the beg 3-inch tail through the T-piece of the toggle clasp, sliding the T-piece up to the first chain stitch.  Wrap the tail around the base of the T-piece at least 3 times to secure it into place.  Trim the excess with wire cutters.  Repeat for ending 3-inch tail and O-piece.
